Designing online tests

What are the advantages of creating online tests?

  • It saves teacher’s time as marking is automatically generated.
  • The use of media may be more attractive for the students  (images, audio, video and other digial tools)
  • Teachers may keep a “question bank” to generate future tests
  • Tests may be set to show correct or expected answers

According to Velan, Kumar, Dziegielewski and Wakefield (2002)

Web-based formative assessments offer clear advantages for staff and students:
–flexibility in timing and location of assessment
–feedback can contain links to learning resources
–opportunity for repetition and interactivity
–support equity and inclusiveness
